My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: California
Work mans comp. doctor gave me a note for my employer that said word for word "Light non-repetitive work for both left and right hand for up to two hours." I gave the note to my employer who then exasperatedly asked me what I could do. She then went on to take me off the schedule for the week until my next appointment saying her "hands were tied." I am to see her after my next appointment but I am unsure if I am still off the schedule. I was told that she is not allowed to do that, it is illegal, and that she is to make a position for me to stay on the schedule. I have carpal tunnel in both hands. Any links or references would be much appreciated.
I was also told by a supervisor before I filed that I was not allowed to call in because of my wrists.
